When prophecy fails by Leon Festinger( Book )

32 editions published between 1956 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,036 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1954 Leon Festinger, a brilliant young social psychologist in the process of inventing a new theory of human behavior-the theory of cognitive dissonance-infiltrated a cult who believed the end of the world was only months away. How would these people feel when their prophecy remained unfulfilled? Would they admit the error of their prediction, or would they, as Festinger predicted, readjust their reality to make sense of the new circumstances? Not only is When Prophecy Fails of great historical importance, but it is also a surprisingly touching account of what happens to ordinary people under extraordinary circumstances

L'Echec d'une prophétie : psychologie sociale d'un groupe de fidèles qui prédisaient la fin du monde by Leon Festinger( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in French and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Très nombreuses sont les religions et les sectes qui prédisent la fin du monde. Les auteurs de ce livre étudient une de ces sectes qui prévoit qu'un tel événement, la destruction de l'humanité, aura lieu un jour précis. Et qui s'y prépare avec la certitude que ses fidèles seront sauvés. De toute évidence, la prophétie devait échouer. D'où la question posée dans le livre : comment réagit une collectivité humaine lorsque sa croyance est démentie par la réalité ? La théorie de la dissonance cognitive, qui sert de fil conducteur à cette recherche, nous explique pourquoi, au lieu de renoncer à leur croyance, comme le voudrait la logique, les fidèles continuent au contraire à la répandre et font des prosélytes afin de trouver auprès d'eux la confirmation que la réalité leur a refusée. Un très beau livre, qui se lit comme un roman.www.payot.ch/Detail/lechec_dune_prophetie-leon_festinger-9782130456193

When prophecy fails : a social and psychological study of a modern group that predicted the destination of the world by Leon Festinger( Book )

4 editions published between 1956 and 1967 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The behaviour of a small group of people who believe that they have been forewarned of the impending end of the world would be dismissed by many social scientists as interesting but hardly researchable. The authors of this book are to be commended, not only for undertaking a difficult task, but for doing it remarkably well...Using the participant observer method, this research team collected an impressive body of data in the brief span of two months. Their research resulted in convincing, if not definitive, confirmation of their hypotheses. At the same time, it constitutes a stimulating example of the adaptation of method to a significant subject, rather than the selection of the research topic because it fits the latest fads in methodology." [American Sociological Review]
